Underage man forfeits slots jackpot at Pa. casino

BETHLEHEM, Pa. (AP) — State police say a New York man had to forfeit a slot machine jackpot at a casino in eastern Pennsylvania because he wasn’t legally old enough to gamble.

Troopers at the Sands Casino Resort in Bethlehem didn’t reveal the size of the jackpot won — briefly — Wednesday.

Police say a photo on the identification card provided by Rong Lin, of Fresh Meadows, N.Y. didn’t match his appearance when he was trying to collect his winnings. After further investigation, casino officials and police determined Lin was only 20. The state’s legal gambling age is 21.

Instead, police say they cited Lin for underage gambling.
